COLORADO SPRINGS, CO -- The man who police say randomly shot and killed three people near downtown Colorado Springs over the weekend grew up in Central Oregon. Investigators say 33-year-old Noah Harpham was killed in a shootout with police, Saturday morning. Harpham graduated from Sisters High School in 2000. 

 

The motive for the shootings remains unknown. Police say he walked out of his home and shot and killed a nearby bicyclist and two women sitting on a nearby porch. Harpham's mother, Heather Kopp is an author and wrote about her son's alcoholism  as well as her own.

 

Police say Harpham worked in insurance in Colorado Springs and appeared to have little trouble with the law except for a speeding ticket more than ten years ago. His younger brother is an attorney at a Bend law firm.  
 
His family released a statement through a Colorado minister saying, "Our family is shocked and deeply saddened by the devastating events that took place in Colorado Springs Saturday morning.  Words cannot express our heartfelt sympathies that go out to the families and friends of the victims.  We ask for privacy as our family tries to deal with this tragedy."
